Good morning everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Friday, November 3rd, 2017. Here are some highlights from yesterday’s action in the Arizona Fall League.
*****Texas Rangers infield prospect Josh Morgan went 4-for-5 with a home run and four RBI for the Surprise Saguaros, which unfortunately wasn’t quite enough as they fell to the Mesa Solar Sox by an 8-6 score. Oakland Athletics prospect Sheldon Neuse, Washington Nationals prospect Kelvin Gutierrez, and Detroit Tigers prospect Kody Eaves all hit home runs for the Sox.
*****Arizona Diamondbacks prospect Victor Reyes went 3-for-4 with three runs scored for the Salt River Rafters in their 6-3 win over the Glendale Desert Dogs. Cleveland Indians pitching prospect Sean Brady threw five innings, allowing only an unearned run while striking out four for the Dogs, a fine outing until the bullpen blew the game for him.
*****Boston Red Sox prospect Michael Chavis went 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored for Peoria Javelinas in their 4-2 win over the Scottsdale Scorpions. New York Mets prospect Kevin Kaczmarski went 3-for-5 in the losing cause and is now hitting .397 in the Fall League.
